Texans acquire Stefon Diggs in trade with Bills

In a surprising move, the Bills have traded wide receiver Stefon Diggs to the Texans. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the deal will see Buffalo receive a 2025 second-round pick in exchange for Diggs. Houston will also receive a 2024 sixth-round pick and a 2025 fifth-round pick.

Diggs, who is currently signed through 2027, has been with the Bills since 2020. In his first season with the team, he led the league in catches (127) and yards (1535). Despite having a slight decrease in production in 2023, Diggs still managed to achieve over 100 catches (107) and 1,000 yards (1,183) for the fourth year in a row. He has now surpassed 1,000 receiving yards for six consecutive seasons.

The decision to part ways with Diggs comes after Houston expressed interest in acquiring him as another weapon for second-year quarterback C.J. Stroud. By trading Diggs before June 1st, the Bills will face a $31 million dead cap charge in 2024. However, this move allows them to free up space on their roster and potentially acquire new talent to complement their existing players.
